“God Can You Forgive Me For Taking a Life?”

On February 2nd, 1996, 16-year-old Saulo Montalvo and two of his friends pulled up to a party store in Grand Rapids, MI with a plan to take the money and the life of the clerk. In August 1996 Saulo was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison with no possibility of parole.

Saulo’s now free in Christ and free from prison and works with Mel Trotter Ministries. Mel Trotter Ministries is working to bring an end to homelessness one life at a time through the power of Jesus.

As a true wounded healer Saulo opens up his pain: he shares about the deep soul wound as a boy that led to incredible anger; the fateful day of the crime; crying out to Jesus after he was caught, being called into ministry through Moody Radio, how God works through our greatest failures, and his face-to-face meeting with the family of the party store clerk whose life was taken.

Please share this story of hope! Someone you know or don’t know, needs to hear it!

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
